Appraisal reviews "should verify whether the appraisal or evaluation is applicable for the transaction, the danger of the transaction, and whether the processes by which the collateral valuation is obtained guarantees independence and quality," the Federal Reserve says. They "should also show whether the appraisal or evaluation report is true to the letter of engagement, which sets forth the capacity of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve states that "some banks add routine reviews with post-funding assessments of appraisal quality for some of their higher-liability or higher-value dealings as a method to help in uncovering valuation concerns."
